About the Event

Chinese junks played a significant role in maritime transportation in Hong Kong’s early days and facilitated the development of local fisheries. Today, junks have largely withdrawn from major marine transportation, yet they remain as one of Hong Kong’s most important cultural and tourism icons. Using junk models, historical paintings and sketches, rare books, photographs, and postcards, this exhibition introduces the characteristics of Chinese junks in Hong Kong, mirroring the rapid changes of our city. It also illustrates the development of the important yet demolishing Chinese junk building industry in Hong Kong, the Pearl River Delta region and beyond.
